USA Swimming LSCs and Clubs

 

To: Club Contacts, Coaches, LSC General Chairs, LSC Admin Vice Chairs, LSC Staff, LSC Membership Chairs, LSC Registration Chairs, LSC Safe Sport Chairs

At its May 7, 2021 meeting, due to a change mandated by the U.S. Center for SafeSport, the USA Swimming Board of Directors voted to amend Corporate Bylaw 2.6.6, which specifies those individuals required to be non-athlete members of USA Swimming. 

Effective September 1, 2021, all employees (e.g., staff, interns, etc.) and individuals serving on the board of directors of USA Swimming, Zones, Local Swimming Committees (LSCs) and member clubs must be non-athlete members of USA Swimming. Previously, as it relates to employees, only those who interact directly and frequently with athletes were required to be non-athlete members of USA Swimming. Now, all employees of USA Swimming, LSCs and member clubs must be non-athlete members of USA Swimming regardless of whether they interact directly and frequently with athletes. Additionally, all volunteers of USA Swimming, Zones, LSCs and member clubs who interact directly and frequently with or have authority over athletes as a regular part of their duties are also required to be non-athlete members of USA Swimming.  

Note this does not apply to volunteers such as timers, marshals, computer operators, etc., who only have limited contact with athletes during a meet.
